Product Description
The 1950s pop music accompanying Li'l Bit's excursion down memory lane cannot drown out the ghosts of her past. Sweet recollections of driving with her beloved uncle intermingle with lessons about the darker sides of life. Balmy evenings are fraught with danger; seductions happen anywhere. Li'l Bit navigates a narrow path between the demands of family and her own sense of right and wrong. ... Read more

This play has been my favorite contemporary play since I first read it about four years ago. It tells the story of Lil' Bit and her relationship with her uncle Uncle Peck which begins when she is very young and continues until she is in college. Though she is clearly a victim of molestation, the story is much deeper than that of a victim and her perpetrator. Vogel lets to audience into Lil' Bit's dysfunctional family in which her grandfather is over-sexed and her grandmother is at the beckon call of his sexual urges. In addition, Lil' Bit's mother gives her advice on sex and men that is misguided due to her own failing as a wife. The only family member that Lil' Bit can turn to is her uncle who loves her as more than a niece. The two begin a relationship before Lil' Bit even reached puberty. Though Lil' Bit knows that the relationship is wrong, Uncle Peck is her only advocate and support.

The play is told through various scenes that are not chronological. Vogel chose to do this in order to question the audience about at what point does their relationship become inappropriate. She wanted the audience to view a scene and think "is this wrong" and then escalate to a more graphic scene in order to raise the question "now is it wrong". With each scene, Vogel is asking the audience when does the relationship cross the line. While there is not a great deal of action, it is one of the most thought-provoking plays. I cannot give it enough praise!!

4-0 out of 5 stars This lives up to the Pulitzer.
I saw this years ago and when I was looking for something unique and powerful to direct I ordered this script. I wasn't disappointed. Peck is one of the most fabulous roles a guy could ever hope for. Lil Bit is every bit as challenging part. The staging and approach of this play are far from standard and make for the opportunity for a theater to break from their normal run of box sets and standard play structure. A very worthwhile read.

3-0 out of 5 stars no issues, exactly what I would expect
the product showed up on time, in good condition. I had no problems with the transaction at all. it was perfect.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very disturbing.
"How I Learned to Drive" is very modern in its presentation, but enormously unnerving.Its use of a Greek chorus and minimal stage props just adds to the eeriness and vulgarity of the story.What is scary and truthful about this play is that in some families, occurrences like this may be happening.The character of Peck will give you goose bumps.I recommend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great.
I guess you could say this play is about the complexity of human-ness. If you enjoy great, complicated characters (like the real people around you) see this play or buy this recording.
Does Uncle Peck remind anyone of Bill Clinton? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceeded Expectations
I ordered this play script last Wednesday, 02/17, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see it waiting for me in my mailbox today, 02/22. I have heard some pretty negative comments about "you can't be too careful" ordering from Amazon because you never know when your order will -actually- get to you or what kind of condition it will be in.

Well, let's just say my expectations were far exceeded by this purchase. The script is in great condition, and I received it in a far less amount of time than I had assumed I would. Thank you for a quality script--I can't wait to start reading!

3-0 out of 5 stars Crimes of the Heart
This play is a dark comedy. It's great for the acting student for analysis and scene study.

4-0 out of 5 stars Will keep you interested until the end
Enjoyed CRIMES OF THE HEART, a play that won the 1981 Pulitzer
Prize for drama.

It was very well performed by L.A. Theatre Works, a company that
has done several other plays that I've enjoyed over the years.

This one is about three rather eccentric sisters from a small
Southern town . . . scandal erupts when Babe, the youngest,
shoots her husband . . . how it all ends is what keeps you
interested in what's happening.

Glenn Heady and Sondra Locke are particularly fine in
two of the main roles . . . and that's why I usually like these
productions so much; i.e., unlike typical books on tape (or CD)
that feature one or two actors, every L.A. Theatre Works has
several different actors for all the key parts.
